I was trying out the new toned gray paper from Strathmore and here's what I came up with. I really like the paper, but for me, it takes some getting used to. I keep trying to erase with my kneaded eraser and get the white back, but there's only gray. But that's just fine, because I have my trusty white charcoal and it's beautiful to run the white charcoal across the black to make lovely grays. Any other ideas for using this paper? I like to hear them! This drawing is 12 x 9". Thanks for stopping by!
I have always loved to draw the face and figure. If I'm not actually drawing from the posed model or sketching people going about their everyday lives, I'm probably thinking about it. I seldom miss an opportunity to draw or paint from life and I strive every day to capture not just a likeness of my subjects, but also the more elusive qualities of spirit, mood and emotion.
